Italian Goods sold in Saudi Arabia
by: Anonymous

What you have described (I see no images) sounds like a classic Italian makers mark. The star, the 255 VI is an Italian maker's mark attributed to Gruppach Orfeo S.r.l.,Via Monte Zebio, 22 Vicenza, in the province of Vicenza, Italy with their mark registered on 30/8/1958 and still active as of 31/12/1971. Italy is a large supplier of jewelery and jewelery findings. It is feasible that the jewelry company that sold you the piece used Italian fittings to complete the item or the entire item is Italian. The star in the mark was not used until 1968.

High carat gold, India & the Middle-East
by: Anonymous

22 and 21 carat gold is made of 91% and 87% pure gold respectively. These caratages are more prevalent or common in India and the Middle East. However, just because high caratages are more popular in the Middle-East and India, it doesn't necessarily follow, that the item was made in the Middle East or in India. My friend, for example, has just purchased a 21 carat gold brooch that was made in Australia.

Was the bracelet purchased in the Middle-East as your title suggests or are you just hoping? If it was definitely purchased in the Middle-East, you wouldn't be asking about its origin.

Please be more specific!
